I have 8 weeks to get myself in shape and ready for the Via. That’s long enough, indeed I have planned it this way. So I started in earnest. Walking everyday.
For the first week I have walked a circuit around our house that we call the white walk. It’s a beautiful walk, regardless of the weather or the time of day. It has a little road walking, but on the whole it’s on a stone track, a white chemin and through a forest… and it has an up and a down and some flat… perfect camino training!
I’ve picked up two small blisters but I know it’s because of my shoe test and not a serous problem. So I’ll have a day off and start again on Tuesday!
